March 11, 2016, 7:47 p.m

To wake up in the spring from hiber­na­tion, you need to replen­ish your body with vit­a­mins, and rose hips will help us per­fect­ly in this. This berry has long been con­sid­ered an excel­lent health boost­er. In dried berries, vit­a­mins are stored through­out the win­ter. How­ev­er, remem­ber that in order to help the body cope with the spring lack of vit­a­mins, rose hips must be prop­er­ly dried. The berries are dried with­out the use of heat treat­ment, in a dark, well-ven­ti­lat­ed area.

From dry berries you can make a deli­cious and healthy drink. In the evening, pour 1 liter of boil­ing water over 2 hand­fuls of wild rose berries and insist in a ther­mos until morn­ing. Drink the infu­sion through­out the day.

But besides rose hips, there are sev­er­al oth­er types of proven sources of vit­a­mins, such as green onions, which can be grown on the win­dowsill of your own apart­ment, start­ing in the ear­li­est spring. Green onions con­tain vit­a­min C, carotene, vit­a­mins E, B1, folic acid. It is very rich in potas­si­um and iron salts and sur­pass­es all veg­eta­bles and fruits in cal­ci­um con­tent.

Also, in order to over­come win­ter fatigue and depres­sion and be in excel­lent phys­i­cal shape in spring, you need to eat cit­rus fruits — a valu­able source of vit­a­min C. As in cab­bage, it is well pre­served until spring. All of these prod­ucts also con­tain vit­a­min P (rutin), which increas­es the absorp­tion of vit­a­min C.

But, per­haps, the cham­pi­on in the con­tent of vit­a­min C is not cit­rus fruits, but jam from nee­dles. To pre­pare heal­ing jam, take 3 cups of spruce shoots, add 1.5 cups of sug­ar, add 2 cups of water, mix and put on fire. After boil­ing, cook for 20 min­utes over low heat, stir­ring con­stant­ly. Take spruce jam with tea sev­er­al times a day.
